GlassDoor.com is a site that will give you more insight into a company if you so desire to know more. Users can log in and provide info about companies such as ratings, reviews, and salaries. You can also take a look at what others have to say about their companies, which could be really helpful when researching a new job.
So far, they’ve already heard from employees at over 11,000 different companies from around the world, spanning across 80 countries. It sounds like a lot, but there are a ton of companies not in their database, which is where you can chip in. Post a review or salary of some of the companies of you worked for recently and help other people decide if they really want to work there. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times this service could have been useful to me in the past.
I actually signed up and submitted some information from one of my previous employers. The process was fairly easy, actually. All I had to do was enter a little company information and go through a couple of questions in which you rate the company from 1 to 5. There is a section after this part that you can fill in to provide a little more in-depth information about the company as well, which comes with incentive. If you submit a review that’s really helpful to the community, it may be picked to win $500. Sounds like a good deal to me. I hope my review is picked, I could use a little more spending cash.
